Your Dashboard Is Your Friend
Around her we try to make everything as easy as possible. Our dashboard is no different. Here’s a little tour to help get you acclimated. This is the first thing you’ll see when you log in to your account:
The map is most prominent. The pin is the centerpoint of your advertising area. The purple circle is the 20 mile diameter around it. This is where your ads will run.
If you click on the pin your bee information will pop up:
It shows you the name of your bee, it’s buzz tag, account level, impressions, and resonance score (both for the selected date range). You can also click on “edit this bee” which takes you to the account page. This becomes more important if you have set up multiple bees in your hive.
We’ll get to the menu stuff in a second. First…
The first thing you want to know is how your ads are doing. Across the top of this section we give you the Resonance Score, Number of Ads Run, The Total Paid Engagements, and Total Paid Impressions for the date range selected (it defaults to the past 30 days)
You then see some handy-dandy graphs that show you paid impressions (the top graph) and the resonance score (the bottom graph) for the ads in the selected date range.
THE BUZZED POSTS
Here you’ll see a list of all the ads you’ve run in the selected date range. You can sort them by date (default), Resonance Score, or Paid Impressions.
Clicking on any of the “View” buttons will give you a sample of the ad content. Please note that this is not exactly how it looks on Facebook. We do not pull over video or multiple images. This is intended as a reference only.
By clicking on the “checkerboard” icon, you can pull up a tile-view of all of the ads – also sortable by date (default), Resonance Score, or Paid Impressions.
LET’S GO BACK TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE!
MY DASHBOARD: Brings you back to the main page of the dashboard.

LOGOUT: This will log you out of the dashboard.

You can change your plan whenever you want. Please note, the plan change will go into effect on your renewal date.
Also, you can pause or cancel your account from this page. There are no long term contracts, so you can pause at any time. You can start your account back up later on if you want. Just log back in, and we’ll get you back up and buzzing.
If you want to change your credit card info for any reason (like a lost, stolen, or just different card), you can do it here. This info will be used on your next renewal.
Yes, we have a referral program! It’s called FreeBee. Whenever anyone uses your FreeBee Code, we’ll send you $50. This is where you will find your code.
